Creeky Bottom Farmstay has a unique location as it is within the grounds used by Zippity Zoo, a mobile farm petting zoo. Lots of friendly animals. The cottage is just a short drive to Waikawa Beach, Beach Reserves, many rivers with fabulous swimming, plus rolling hills full of bushwalks and hikes.

So much for families to enjoy in the local area, especially low cost or free. For epicurians it is a foodies delight as Ruth Pretty cooking school is a mere 15 minutes drive away.

The area is abundant with beaches and swimming holes in local rivers. Levinhas some fabulous family centred activities such as the Levin Adventure Park, very reasonably priced boutique movie theatre and café, Te Takare, community hub activities and of course the Levin Aquatic Centre with slides, pools and spa plus fun holiday activities. Plenty of festivals such as Organic River festivsl, Otaki Kite festival, lavender farm open days and Levin hot air balloon nightglow. For grown ups we have award winning wineries, stunning cafes, a day out at Otaki Races with family day early January, historic Manakau Pub just 10 mins walk up the road and for a bit of pampering Spa day in Manakau Village

    The cottage had all that we needed & was spotlessly clean and quaint. Loved having breakfast on the deck watching the animals & sitting on the porch in the evening listening to the night noises of the countryside. The lack of TV & internet wasn't missed by two device-crazy boys as the farm next door was a fabulous experience for my city slickers, & the beach was less than 5 min drive. The Waikawa beach was a big hit with the kids, they didn't want to leave at the end of the day.
